The River Deben is a source of enjoyment for many people. Whether they sail, swim, walk the banks or watch the birds, the common factor is this unique river in its beautiful valley.

Regrettably, the Deben valley is not immune to the pressures of population growth and development. Already, some aspects of this environment are under threat. Pressures on the river are increasing, and public opinion must be able to influence the nature and pace of change for the good of all.

The RIVER DEBEN ASSOCIATION was formed as a strong local interest group to address these problems. Its purpose is to represent and reconcile the interests of all concerned with the future of the Deben and its environs, and on a number of issues has already demonstrated that a strong voice will be heeded.
